It’s what you’ve all been waiting for - the finalists for the BEEF Daily Baby Calf Photography Contest have been selected, and it’s your turn to weigh in on your favorites! With nearly 200 entries coming from across the U.S. and even Canada and Mexico, it was a really tough decision to select the top 10 finalists, and I think you will all agree that there are some great photographers and some cute babies represented in this contest. Now, it's up to you to select our grand and reserve champion photographs in this contest!
Congratulations to our finalists: Molly Mader, David Sanson, Morgan Tomson, Troy Rowan, Laura Nelson, Theresa Pritchard, Amanda Gillett, Kristy Grieve, Lee Miller, Megan Hopkins. Thanks to all who participated! View the complete album here.
To vote: Numbered 1-10 from top to bottom, select your favorite photo by its number and leave your vote in the comments section. Voting will be open until Thursday, April 29, 2010, and winners will be announced on Monday, May 3. Grand Champion photographer will receive a copy of "Great Ranches of the West" by Jim Keen, and Reserve Champion photographer will win a notecard set appropriately named to fit the theme of this contest, “Mother and Child,” by David Stoecklein.
